Tax policy – in line with international standards

Switzerland and the EU are endeavouring to develop international standards in the field of tax policy: The agreement on the taxation of savings income and the agreement on the fight against fraud are significant milestones in this area of cooperation

Economy and finance – an essential partnership

The EU accounts for over half of Swiss exports and two-thirds of Swiss imports – economic relations are vitally important

Free movement of persons – functioning and current state of play

The agreement on the free movement of persons enables citizens from Switzerland and the EU member states to freely choose their place of work and place of domicile within the territories of the contracting parties
